Fabulous Events for Celebrating New Year's Eve In Park City

Posted by Tania on December 17, 2012

Nothing makes me feel older than New Year's on a Ski Vacation.  Muscles aching you'll typically find me bundled on my sofa drinking wine watching a movie.  I realize that the rest of the world prefers to ring in the New Year with much more pizazz!  So, if I were to venture out of my jammies to celebrate New Year's Eve here are my top picks!

Looking for a way to celebrate with the family? 

Hit Jupiter Bowl for a night of bowling you can reserve a lane, or if you have a group - book a private room.  Jupiter Bar has a full bar and we can always find selections on the food menu that please the entire family.

Gorgoza Park doesn't stay open until midnight, but if you are looking for a fun way for the family to play together on the last evening of the year… Gorgoza Park fits the bill.

Book the Park City Ice Rink - For $260 you can have the ice at the Park City Arena all to yourself (or your group)!  At the time of publication the 8-9PM time slot was still free!

Head to the Canyons:  The Canyons New Years Eve celebrations begin in the village at 3PM, wrapping up with a fireworks display at 7:30PM.  Festivities include Horse Drawn Sleigh Rides, Jugglers, Magicians, a DJ, Jibbin' For Juniors Jam (free - but requires registration 435-615-3449)

On December 30th, Dear Valley's Torchlight Parade will be held at approximately 6 p.m. (dusk) on Big Stick ski run on Bald Eagle Mountain. Complimentary hot apple cider and cookies will be served.

Planning to celebrate without Little People?

The Montage Deer Valley hosts a New Year's Eve gala with live music and festivities.  Little one's can celebrate at Paintbox, the Montage's Children's program for children ages 5 - 12.
